Curriculum Vitae

 I am flexible, responsible, and reliable in my work practices and I am a loyal staff member (look after parents for ten years) a good team player (scuba driver and competition square dancer) and someone who is capable of working independently (distance learning has done my education achievements).  I am always willing to assist in times of staff shortages –, especially at short notice.
